Sorry as I'm 2 days late, but on May 21st of this week, while I was off the internet for the afternoon and evening, I went and saw IF in theatres. My review of this recently-released new live-action/CGI animated feature film is in the image.

GameStop in the US and Canada comparison for Throwback Thursday. Yes, GameStop is now present in Canada, as it was formerly EB Games locations there before 2021. A longtime ago, EB Games used to have locations in the US. All of them have since became GameStop locations in the US. The name still exists in Australia.

2nd Dave & Buster's location I went to after the one in Addison, IL, and it's now close to me in my local at The Streets of Woodfield in the former GameWorks location in Schaumburg, IL (greater Chicago area).

Anyways, this Dave & Buster's location opened on February 26, 2024 in the former GameWorks location, which opened on June 3, 1999, and closed on December 24, 2021 (on Christmas Eve, along with other locations), due to the company falling into bankruptcy due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with a single location in Seattle, WA eventually reopening on August 3, 2022. This location has 2 floors with sports bar, kitchen, and restrooms in both floors.

They have the Schindler 3100 Elevator, this elevator is leftover from back when it was a GameWorks location before 2021, and moved the staircase around the elevator by the entrance.

Filmed on April 27, 2024.

The address is at:

601 N Martingale Rd, Schaumburg, IL 60173

Also, as well TicketMaster1000, this guy here known for doing arcade tours across the US, by going to Chuck E. Cheese, Dave & Buster's, Main Event locations, and others in locals, began to follow me on Instagram, based on my experiences going to arcades for many years at Chuck E. Cheese, Main Event, and Dave & Buster's. I'll do one soon when I go on a cruise next month with Royal Caribbean with their arcade (yes, instead of a game card, you use and pay a Sea Pass card to play the games there), and Six Flags Great America (my local Six Flags-owned and operated theme park in the greater Chicago area).

(Sorry as I'm a week late, as this was originally intended to be posted on May 1, 2024)

Anyways, this month, Ethan Cross Media is celebrating Asian-American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month! πŸ˜€

I'm proud to be an American person of Filipino descent who creates arts and entertainment content and designs original and third party intellectual property characters. Born from parents who are from the Philippines in the United States. I know you guys, if you live in larger American metropolitan areas like here in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Washington, D.C., Dallas, Seattle, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, and many others, where it has Filipino population, you might be familiar with Jollibee (a Filipino fast food chain).

This morning, Nintendo has officially announced their upcoming Nintendo Direct for next month in June on the upcoming games for their Switch console for the 2nd half of this year in 2024. Also as well, a Nintendo Switch successor (Nintendo Switch 2) announcement is coming soon "This Fiscal Year" (as it will not be revealed on their next month's Nintendo Direct. Since 2018, I've been playing games on the Nintendo Switch, starting with Super Mario Odyssey and Sonic Forces to today with Super Mario Bros.

8 years ago in 2016, The Loud House premiered on Nickelodeon.

Yes, this cartoon is nearly 10 years old, and it has been running ever since. The pilot will turn 10 turns old next month on June 5 (a decade old, as it was released on June 5, 2014).

Over the years, I've doing fan arts, collecting merchandise, and pieces of media from the voice actresses of the Loud sisters (autographs, Cameo videos, and my video chat with Grey DeLisle from GalaxyCon back in 2022. I have both autographs and Cameo videos from Grey DeLisle, Jessica DiCicco, and Nika Futterman). For those in the jealousy, I have nearly all the pieces of media from the voice actresses of the Loud sisters, as I'm getting a Lori Loud lithograph from Catherine Taber from Celebworx this summer (no, I will not get a Lori Loud lithograph signed by her from her Streamily live this Saturday, due to money constraints for vacation soon to New York City, and an undisclosed one, Nika is also doing this too, but I already have and autograph from her), as I'll be one of the only Loud House fans that will have all the pieces of media from the voice actresses of the Loud sisters.

Yeah, I feel so old, when it first aired in 2016. I was 17 years old.

Yes, I've been a longtime fan of Grey DeLisle, Jessica DiCicco, Nika Futterman, and Lara Jill Miller, as well as Liliana Mumy, as I heard their voices since when I was a kid in 2000s. I'm good friends with them for my future interests with animation. Yes, they mean a lot to me, as a Filipino-American person based in the greater Chicago area who's into this cartoon.

Here's my Tara Strong lithograph recently written in quote as her character Raven, when I went to see her in person at Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) at the 7 Bucks A Pop booth.

Yeah, it was required, it's because I had to get something with a photo shoot.
